EVEN OUR LORD…SLEPT!
When Jesus came out as a Babe,
Think of all the joy He gave…
Heaven sat aside
Wondering eyes wide,
How could this little One save?
The angels had to wait a few years,
Watching this boy through their tears..
‘Tween Heaven and earth
They witnessed His birth,
Watching long growing-up years.
He couldn’t reappear in the air,
He had to change to clean underwear…
As the family snored,
Sounds deafening to the ear!
Sometimes Jesus learned the hard way
Had to pace himself for every day…
Food needed time
To cook, and wine
Had to ferment for a coming Feast Day.
Delayed by others at fault,
How tempting to open the vault…
Of powers set aside–
Just once–to see pride
Of his family in times difficult1
But a sinless life Jesus served,
Facing crucifixion He never deserved…
Must have been eternity
To live humanly,
Knowing a seat next to his Father god was reserved!
In a way I know just how He felt,
Having to tighten the belt…
Needing breaks to go on–
Talking to His father as He knelt.
